Triphosphoric acid


Triphosphoric acid

Triphosphoric acid, also tripolyphosphoric acid, with formula H5P3O10, is a condensed form of phosphoric acid.

In polyphosphoric acids, it is the next after pyrophosphoric acid, H4P2O7, also called diphosphoric acid.

Compounds such as ATP (adenosine triphosphate) are esters of triphosphoric acid.
